The three finalists competing for the 11th edition of the European Parliament's annual film award are:
BPM (Beats per minute) by French director Robin Campillo depicts the solidarity, sense of humour and determination of a group of activists fighting for more visibility about the problem of AIDS and for faster progress in prevention and cure in France in the early nineties.
Sámi Blood by Swedish director Amanda Kernell tells the story of a 14-year-old Lapp girl who abandons her community because she dreams of a different life, but she has to face racist attitudes.
Western by German director Valeska Grisebach uses the ingredients of cowboys-and-Indians classics to address the issues of economic immigration and integration and tell a story about German workers on a construction site for a hydroelectric power station in beautiful natural surroundings in Bulgaria.
European films in European cinemas
The films will be coming to some cinemas in Europe in the next couple of weeks, but your best chance to see them is during the Lux Film Days this autumn. Thanks to European Parliament support, the three films will be subtitled in the 24 official EU languages and shown in 50 cities and at several festivals across Europe.
The winning film will be chosen by MEPs and announced on 15 November during the Strasbourg plenary session in the presence of the directors.
